CAUTION
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is
an important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperatures, such as bananas, and
melons.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil
other food, and lead to higher energy consumption.
When storing the food, cover it with vinyl wrap or store in a container with a lid. This
prevents moisture from evaporating, and helps food to keep its taste and nutrients.
Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator
temperatures even.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the
refrigerator, and cause temperatures to rise.
Never keep too much food in door rack because they may push against by inner racks
so that the door cannot be fully closed.
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrient.
When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer
shelf, not in the door rack.
Do not touch the cold foods or containers- especially made of metallic -, with wet
hands and place glass products in the freezer compartment.

That’s why you may have chilblains and they may be broken when their inner
matters are frozen, causing personal injury.
Do not put the wet food on the top shelf of the cooling room. It may be frozen by
getting the cool air directly.
Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and
wiped, and packed food should be wiped, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and
always store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.
NOTE
•
32
If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent openning of the door
or storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause dew to form which has no effect on its
performance. Remove the dew with dust cloth free from care.
Care and maintenance
General information
Vacation time
During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the refrigerator
in operation. Place freezable items in freezer for longer life.
When you plan not to operate, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the
interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odor formation.
Power failure
Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your refrigerator
temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
If you move
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base.
Anti
condensation
pipe
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may sometimes get warm, especially just
after installation.
Don’t be alarmed. This is due to the anti-condensation pipe, which pumps hot
refrigerator to prevent “sweating” on the outer cabinet wall.
CAUTION
• You must check the O-RING, which is made by rubber and prevent electric spark.
• Don't touch lamp, in case of light on the long time. Because it can be very hot.
Cleaning
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odors. Spilled
food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if
allowed to settle.
Exterior
Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the durable finish of your
refrigerator.
Wipe with a clean damp cloth and then dry.
Interior
Regular cleaning is recommended. Wash all compartments a baking soda solution or a
mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
After cleaning
Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power plug is not overheated, or
power plug is well inserted into the power consent.
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts (lamps, switches, controls, etc.).
Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or cloth to prevent water or liquid from getting
into any electrical part and causing an electric shock.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong alkaline
solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface.
Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick or
adhere to extremely cold surfaces.

Care and maintenance
Smart Diagnosis
Should you experience any problems with your refrigerator, it has the capability of
transmitting data via your telephone to the LG service center. This gives you the
capability of speaking directly to our trained specialists. The specialist records the data
transmitted from your machine and uses it to analyze the issue, providing a fast and
effective diagnosis.
If you experience problems with your refrigerator, call to the LG service center.
Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so by the LG call center
agent. The transmission sounds that you will hear are normal and sound similar to a fax
machine.
Smart Diagnosis cannot be activated unless your refrigerator is connected to power.
If your refrigerator is unable to turn on, then troubleshooting must be done without
using Smart Diagnosis.
Using Smart
Diagnosis
First, call to the LG service center. Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when
instructed to do so by the LG call center agent.
1. Lock the display. To lock the display, press and hold the Lock button
for three seconds. (If the display has been locked for over five
minutes, you must deactivate the lock and then reactivate it.)
2. Open the right refrigerator door.
3. Hold the mouthpiece of your phone in front of the speaker
that is located on the right hinge of the refrigerator door,
when instructed to do so by the call center.
4. Press and hold the Freezer Temperature button for three seconds
while continuing to hold your phone to the speaker.
5. After you hear three beeps, release the Freezer Temperature button.
6. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished.
This takes about 15 seconds, and the display will count down the time. Once the
countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the
specialist, who will then be able to assist you in using the information transmitted for
analysis.
NOTE
34
•
For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted.
•
If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may
be asked to try again.
•
Call quality differences by region may affect the function.
•
Use the home telephone for better communication performance, resulting in better
service.
•
Bad call quality may result in poor data transmission from your phone to the
machine, which could cause Smart Diagnosis to not work properly.

Solution
When you hear "Tak" or
"Took" sound
This is the sound of various parts expanding/contracting or
various control devices operating depending on the
temperature change within the refrigerator.
When you hear
“Deureureuk~”,
“Dulkuk” or “Woong”
sound
This is the count of compressor or fan operating when the
operation of the refrigerator is starting or ending. This is
the same phenomenon of the sound generated when
starting or turning off the engine of a car.
When you hear
"Kureureuk" sound of
water flowing
This is the sound of refrigerant changing the condition in
the freezer/fridge. When the liquid changes to gas, you
will hear the sound of water flowing and when gas
changes to liquid, you will hear the “Kureureuk” sound.
When you hear the
sound of wind such as
“Shoo~” or “Shik” right
after you close the door
This is the sound generated when the internal pressure is
temporarily lowered when the warm air entered through
the fridge or freezer is cooled fast.
When you hear the
vibrating sound
If the refrigerator is installed on wooden floor or wooden
wall, or if the refrigerator is not leveled properly, the
sound can be loud from the vibration.
When you hear a loud
sound after installing the
product for the first time
When you operate the refrigerator for the first time, the
refrigerator will operate at high speed to cool fast and the
sound can seem louder. When the internal temperature
falls below a certain level, the noise will subside.
When the door is slightly
opened after closing the
door.
Depending on the fore or speed of closing the fridge or
freezer door, the door can open slightly and then get
closed. Be careful not to close the door to hard.
When closing refrigerator
door, freezer door open
and close.
It is linked between the refrigerator and freezer in order to
make cold air circulation. So, When close the refrigerator
door, air in the refrigerator go into freezer. It makes freezer
door open. Please relax as is not breakdown.
When there is icing or
dew drops formed on
the inner or outer side of
the refrigerator
When external air flows into the cool inner surface of the
refrigerator, icing/dew drops can be formed.
Especially, this will happen more easily when you open
and close the refrigerator door more frequently.
Also if the humidity of the installed location is high or
during the rainy season or on a rainy day, dew drops can
form on the outer side of the refrigerator. This is a natural
phenomenon that occurs during the humid weather. Wipe
the water drops with a dry cloth.
When the front side of
the refrigerator is warm
Heat pipes are installed around the front part of the
refrigerator and on the divider of the freezer and fridge to
prevent the dew drops from forming.
The refrigerator may feel warmer after the installation or
during the hot summer, but this is not a problem and you
can be rest assured.
